At the corner of 5th and Jefferson Streeta, in the building that formerly housed Chin’s, Elbo’s and Sa Bai, Tasty Measures quietly opened a couple of weeks ago. Named for the way you order your food, measured by the ounce, this breakfast and lunch place will let you build your sandwich and pay by the weight (45 -65 cents depending on the meat), or cruise through the salad bar and pay 35 cents per ounce. Their breakfast offering include the option to customize your 3 egg omelette, grab a sweet or savory pastry with your coffee, cappuccino or espresso or enjoy a breakfast taco or a breakfast meat pie.
Meat pies, made popular by Aaron & Bethany Horn at the Cheeky Meat Pies booth at the Second Street Market were the inspiration for Tasty Measures. They brought these New Zealand puff pie pastries back to the states, had a food truck (which they have sold) and have been quite successful with them. Horn wanted to expand on the pies and have a kitchen were they could mass produce them for frozen sales and shipping. The facility on Jefferson gives her the space to do that as well as use half the space for the diner.
